Posts describing identities (e.g. gender, sexual orientation, etc.) are not definitive. This dictionary should not be used to tell someone how they should identify.

FAAB is an acronym. It stands for Female-Assigned At Birth. A person who is FAAB was sexed as female, most likely based on how that person’s genitalia were perceived by the attending physician. Where this assignment corresponds with someone’s gender identity they are said to be cissexual.
